Web Development
developing clean and semantic code

Most users won't wait more than a few seconds for a website to load before leaving the site. Kubik Creative makes sure that this doesn't happen. Our XHTML, CSS and Javascript- based designs always feature clean, validated code to ensure that your website is search engine-friendly, loads fast, and works across all browsers and platforms.

Logo Design
making your logo your brand

Studies show that customers develop their opinion of your brand within the first three seconds of viewing your logo: we can help you find the message that makes the right impression.

Kubik Creative can help you create the message that will define you to customers, the concept at the centre of your brand's identity. We'll work with you to understand what separates your business from the competition and design your logo, website and print materials to reflect that.

Our logo design packages include multiple stages of concepts and revisions based on your input. At Kubik Creative, there's no cheesy clip art or recycled ideas, but multiple concepts, fonts, and colour schemes to choose from and rework.

We'll create a corporate colour palette, font scheme and logo use guidelines: a manual of graphic standards for use in all future projects, so that clients recognize your company's impression on any future materials. We'll also rework your existing logo to clean up or modernize it.

Search Engine Optimization
ensuring your business is found first

When your competitors' websites rank higher than yours in search engine results, you lose business to them. Kubik Creative can help you convert these visitors into customers by increasing your website popularity and search engine ranking.

We'll create optimized, keyword-rich code to make your website search engine-friendly, and build links with other sites to increase your site's search engine ranking.
